Penza Oblast is one of the spiritual centres of Russia. People from all over the country come to visit the Tikhvin Holy Monastery and Troitse-Scanov Convent with a cave complex.

In addition, tourists come to the village of Lermontovo to visit the small house of the famous poet and prose writer and visit the “Tarkhany” State Museum-Reserve.



Finally, we cannot but mention the settlement of Zolotarev, where one of the main battles in the history of Russia took place, but we will talk about it later.

The Tikhvin Holy Monastery
: this men’s monastery is located in the village of Vadinsk and consists of four cathedrals: the cathedral of the Tikhvin Icon of the Mother of God, of the icon of the Mother of God “Life-Giving Spring”, of St. Demetrius, the Metropolitan of Rostov and the Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker.



The main Church of the Tikhvin Icon of the Mother of God was created on the money of the Moscow merchant Milyakov in 1762. Every Orthodox person will certainly be interested in this monastery, because everything in it has been preserved since the end of the 18th century, from the architecture to icons.
